It has been a loooooooooong time since I've blogged on blogger.  It all feels strange and unfamiliar.

I'm so happy to be invited along with Lucas to clean up my diet and get things back on track.  Woo-hoo!!!
I'm on a dozen days of sobriety and day four of my food cleanse.  Things are going pretty well for the most part.  Outside of a bit of butter on my veggies occasionally, I've been vegan, gluten, sugar, alcohol, tobacco and caffeine free for 4 days.  My body is responding in ways you would expect, shedding all kinds of things it was holding onto which is great, but I would sure love some bread or noodles right about now, that's for sure.  But, I'm sticking with it and looking forward to some grains next week.  I've been walking almost daily and chugging tons of water.  All in all, things are good so far.

Can I Get an Amen?

Bless me bloggosphere, for I have sinned.  It has been 15 months since my last blog post, on this blog anyway.  Meals with Maggie started as a blog to chronicle my journey with my health and wellness coach, Maggie.  Duh.  Now, I'm ressurecting it to chronicle a cleanse I'm doing with my favorite Cupcake and friend, Kim, who also happens to be a health and wellness coach.  

I learned a lot in my time with Maggie and I made some positive changes, but I didn't continue to make them.  I went back to my old habits, as has happened before.  But I'm a big believer of getting back up and brushing yourself off and trying again.  Never give up.  Never surrender.

And so here we are, again.  

Today was marketing and food prep day.  I went to the coop, filled my cart with fruits and veggies and headed home to prepare some meals for the week.

And so, this blog will be a place for Kim and I to keep each other updated on our status as we live thousands of miles apart.  It will probably be pretty boring for the rest of you so you can just move along.  Day one starts tomorrow.  And so off we go.
